ARE THEY MISUSING THE POWER OF THE PEN”/INTERNET TO MISGUIDE PEOPLE?

Content about Sri Lanka’s relationship with China and the newly developing Colombo Port City Project with Chinese engagement has been subjected to a lot of scrutiny by the print, electronic, digital and social-media freelance journalists since the Colombo Port City Bill was presented to Cabinet by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa for approval on the 4th., January 2021.  The bill once approved will become legislation on being gazetted and passed in Parliament.

The Parliament of Sri Lanka on Thursday May 20th., passed the Port City Economic Commission Bill with 149 votes in favour and 58 against, as reported by the local media and which has been gazette officially. An Economic Commission has already been established for the $1.4 billion Colombo Port City enabling it to attract investment and function as an international financial city. In the Keynote Address at the inauguration of the Sri Lanka Investment Forum 2021 held on 7th., June 2021 – His Excellency Gotabaya Rajapaksa, President of Sri Lanka had this also to state:

We now stand on the cusp of a national transformation that can not only uplift Sri Lanka but have positive impacts on the entire region while creating tremendous value for investors across multiple sectors and through diverse instruments.

I invite you to join us on this transformational journey by investing in Sri Lanka.”

FACTS HAVE TO BE STUBBORN.
JOURNALISM IS THE ONLY WAY TO BRING OUT FACTS.
SOCIAL MEDIA IS THE STRENGTH OF THE PEOPLE THAT CAN VOICE THE TRUTH.


The forces that are and the West ” WERE ” very much concerned to STOP this Bill from getting passed in Parliament. China’s support to Sri Lanka cannot be stomached by the West and the USA, including the EU, because Sri Lanka will be in the One Belt One Road” project and will later join the CPEC (China Pakistan Economic Commission) as invited by Hon. Imran Khan, PM of Pakistan, a must for Sri Lanka to become a prosperous and developed Nation, economically and socially to achieve Peace and Harmony in the coming decades. The Colombo Port City will become a Financial Hub and an investment center in the region and this will accelerate the growth of all the nations in South East Asia and the Asia Pacific, with China being the guiding light. If the verdict of the Supreme Court is that certain amendments should be in coopted to the Bill, then the government acted accordingly and got this Bill passed at the very earliest for the benefit of our Mathruboomiya” and the next generation. 

It is a pity that our law makers, MAJORITY of the 225 in parliament are all idiotic fools who sit in parliament consuming our tax money being elected by the innocent people who are hoping for a better future. I do not think that even 25 of these fool (MP’s) would have read the bill or have resourced content/knowledge material in print or the internet to take a look/understand what is the larger picture of both these major Chinese projects are (Hambantota Habour and the Colombo Port City) in respect to the REALITY it will be for Sri Lanka.

Look at the KARAKORAM HIGHWAY” that China has built jointly with Pakistan, a road that is now linking Pakistan and China – 1300 km long which had taken 20 years to accomplish and claimed today as the 7th., wonder of the world. These MP’s who are trying to criticize should have visited Pakistan and taken a trip (drive) from Pakistan to China on this highway to see for themselves the development and socio-economic development this project has brought to the rural and remote villages/urban towns and the people through which the Highway has been built. THE FREELANCE JOURNALISTS, SHOULD ALSO TRY AND MAKE A VISIT TO PAKISTAN, YOURSELVES TO SEE FOR YOUR SELF the reality. The Pakistan High Commission in Colombo may be too pleased to help you out if needed, I am sure. This Karakoram HW link has benefited Pakistan with Sterling pounds 14 billion annually from trade alone.

The KARAKORAM HIGHWAY” and rail links will reach out to all the CIS countries and reach the Mediterranean Sea in the near future and become part of the One Belt One Road” project. Sri Lanka cannot lose this great opportunity because our law makersand “Freelance Journalists” cannot SEE FAR”. The Government has got this bill passed in parliament on the foundation of the support of the people, by the grace of God AllMighty.
